Overview

Apprentice healer Lassair isn’t too alarmed when a travelling peddler relates a grisly tale of a red-bearded giant breaking into a woman’s home and caving in her skull like an eggshell; peddlers, she has observed, tend towards the dramatic. But her attitude changes when she learns that the dead woman is a distant relation.The incident makes Lassair’s family uneasy,for the intruder seemed to be searching for something.
What could it be? Lassair has no idea. But as the stranger grows increasingly desperate, his search brings violence to her very home.

Alys Clare is fine writer, there's no doubt about that. In her hands the 11th century comes alive. I got the feeling that I could step into the scene and know Thorfinn and Laisair and all their relatives. the plotting was also good, if a little strange. This is a mystery that is closer to being fiction with the odd mystery thrown in. That being said it veers off into the mystical. Now I like fantasy and this is not the first historical to have mystical overtones The Judge Dee did that a long time ago. However, it jolted me to have it in this type of book. That is my take on it and someone else may have a different reaction. Lassair is a fine heroine, and the image of her mother wielding a frying pan against invaders is a great one. I look forward to reading more by the author just for the word pictures.
